My Genealogical Journey Through the Use of Documentation.   Through genealogical research, he discovered he descends from a woman of color who gained her freedom in 1779 (Manumission signed by Bernardo de Galvez) and a French national who fought in the Revolutionary War under Bernardo de Galvez in Spanish Colonial Louisiana.
